Generated TOO LITTLE power, feel was worse than I expected, it was quite hard on my arm and playability plummeted after only 4-5 hours of play.
In the beginning, I could at least generate huge spin - especially on the serves - to make up for the lack of power. However this spin-generating potential was gone after only a few hours of play.
Furthermore, it required a lot of effort to generate spin, whereas the Babolat Pro Hurricane Tour generates spin almost by itself.
I will be switching back to Babolat Pro Hurricane Tour 17.

Got it by purchasing the sample pack. Easier to string than the Topspin Cyber Flash. Loved it - feels great right from the beginning - no break-in period. Offers much more power and spin without suffering control at least initially - better than Topspin. I was able to do some amazing shots. However after a few sets the string started to move and I began to lose some control and spin, and it started to feel like Ashaway Monogut. Unfortunately it's 2x more expensive though. Still, I loved the initial 2-3 hours. There's no match to it here.

Luxilon Big Banger Alu Power 16L
Durability Power Control Feel Comfort Spin Tension Stability
It feels better than the Luxilons, and offers better power and control. Spin is the best- never seen better. However at the recommended tension the string started to move very early, resulting in much worse durability. I could be biased because I am using a different synthetic for the crosses than the Luxilon when tested. I think pound for pound it's at par with the ALU, but for the price/performance none of them is better than Topspin Cyber Flash 1.20.

It is very wire like to string. As Polys go, I like it the best. I am not a Poly fan but this is the best I have used. I hybrid it with Head FiberGel Spin. This combination softened up the string bed.

It is far more playable that any of the Luxilon strings I have tried. I am not a big Poly fan but of the ones I have worked with, this is easily the best.

I have switched directly from 1.28 to 1.18 mm. This one remains my favorite string, since it is uniquely perfect. With this gauge I get even better spin and touch. I'm crazy for SPPP!
